Well If you are running your flash disk on windows XP then it XP some of the drives usually show problems.

Go to the format option of the flash disk.

See the default format (NTFS,FAT, FAT32,exFAT)…. if you see that they are (NTFS,FAT,FAT32) then these are all formattable in windows XP, but if you find that it is ex-FAT then i am sorry to say it is not formattable in xp. for that you need vista or higher operating systems.

But if you have these operating systems then all i can say is try formatting them over and over again.I hope that will solve your problem.

Sometimes flash disks have corrupted data. So no need to be worried at all follow these simple steps.

Click My Computer/ right click removable or floppy disk/ click FORMAT.

After you click the format button your drive starts formatting. When formatting completes it shows you the dialog box FORMATTING COMPLETED  click the OK button your removable disk is now formatted.

OR you can click the safely removable devices.

Check removable components.

On hardware components select your drive and click properties on the policy tab click optimize the performance then click ok.

You can now easily format your drive.
